A great have-it-all resort for those who want a ‘stay and relax’ rather than a ‘drive and explore’ holiday.

Sited on a Blue Flag beach above the village of Kolymbia, this adults-only, all-inclusive, award-winning resort offers a variety of rooms to suit all budgets; some on two levels, others with private hot tubs or gardens, but all with a balcony or terrace.

Whatever the price, the hotel never scrimps on service or facilities that include tennis courts, a lagoon-like pool, a gym, and a spa.

There are two easily accessible beaches – busy Afandou and undeveloped Tsambika – bookending Kolymbia, 6km to the north and south.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...

Stegna Kozas

Stegna Kozas

Rhodes, Greek Islands, Greece[4.7 miles]

For an authentic Greek tavern experience, try the Kozas’ family taverna at the outskirts of Stegna, on one of the island’s most beautiful beaches. It’s renowned for its fish, and no wonder, for its network of eleven fishing vessels ensures that the place is well-stocked for seafood, especially lobster.

Rhodes, Greek Islands, Greece[12.8 miles]

This Italian 1930s ghost town in the centre of the island is an out-of-the-way curiosity. Built from scratch for Italian settlers in the mid-1930s, the piazza laid out like a hippodrome and garishly arcaded administration buildings are a bizarre blot on the landscape.

Butterfly Valley

Butterfly Valley

Rhodes, Greek Islands, Greece[13.5 miles]

A 600-care nature reserve where Jersey tiger moths congregate between June and September to mate (and subsequently starve themselves to death). They nestle in droves on branches of the indigenous gum tree forest and fly about in their black- and orange-tinted wings creating a surrealistic spectacle.

Acropolis of Lindos

Acropolis of Lindos

Rhodes, Greek Islands, Greece[18.9 miles]

Rising in a dramatic setting, up a 116m high clifftop and a stiff climb from Lindos village, the Lindos Acropolis dedicated to the goddess Athena is the best-preserved archaeological site in the Dodecanese.
